Take it away, Malc...
ONE.) This song is a collaboration between two new-ish, really talented artists. Sometimes I hear certain artists and I just think to myself: "You get it. You understand what people like to listen to. You understand what sounds good. You just made that sound far better than most people could ever hope to sound in their lifetime."
I think that Jay Electronica, J. Period, and Nneka understand the formula. This track is simple, hard-hitting, and as catchy as crabs. I can't get the chorus out of my head, not that that's something I would want. I think my mom would love this song.
Patrick: I also would just like to give a shout out to Jane Kerr.

TWO.) Objectiv One takes "This is How We Do It," strips it of the already-dope Slick Rick sample and redresses it with some silky smooth jazz. As a general rule, mixing one good ingredient with another good ingredient usually produces a great product. This is the same logic behind peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, boy bands, and thousand-island dressing. Ladies and Gentlemen, we have a winner..
Patrick: This is a dope beat. I just can't seem to listen to jazz flute seriously after Anchorman though. Objective one did the Drake and Washed out mash up in a post earlyurrrr.

THREE.) The 50 Cent classic redone with acoustic steel drums. I think that steel drums are
arguably the coolest sounding instrument humans have ever invented. Prince of Ballard figured that out before I did though. Alright. I need to get back to work.
Patrick: Glad my blog could satisfy your procrastination needs, homeboy.
